In partnership with the British Fashion Council in 2020, the ReBurberry Fabric Initiative promotes a circular economy. It allows Burberry to donate surplus fabrics to students in fashion, which saves them from going waste. Today, the beloved British brand announced the second donation to the program.

The initiative has donated more than 12,000 meters of fabric, from past Burberry collections, to over 30 fashion schools and universities across the U.K. – from the Edinburgh College of Art and the University of Brighton. There is a common belief that the goal of this initiative is to increase creativity and reduce waste. Students are encouraged not only to have a 360-degree creative vision that includes their designs, but also when it is sourcing materials, production, and operational methods. This will help them to create a forward-thinking, sustainable approach to fashion that will serve as a blueprint.
We are proud to once again be working with British Fashion Council to support emerging talent. We can all make our industry a better place by equipping students with the tools and materials that will help them express themselves. Nicole Lovett is Burberry’s Responsibility Programme Director.
